When you face a sex crime charge, DNA evidence is often used on top of witness testimony in order to secure a conviction.

DNA is present throughout the human body, and samples of our unique DNA can be extracted from bodily fluids including blood, saliva, semen, or sweat, along with any body tissue, hair, or other residue that can be left behind at a crime scene. DNA must be collected by trained investigators following proper procedures, and from the crime scene to the court house evidence must follow a chain of custody proving it was never misplaced or mishandled.
Crime labs and law enforcement officers must also use proper procedures and practices to determine whose DNA is left behind at a crime scene, and samples from the case could be matched to samples taken throughout investigation. Contact a lawyer now if you have been asked to give a DNA sample by a police officer, and let us help you protect your rights and interests throughout the justice process.
DNA can be a critical factor in sex crime cases, as substantial DNA test evidence or a lack of evidence could be the difference between winning and losing a criminal case. Although DNA testing can be used to successfully convict criminals, simply proving someone was at the scene, even if it is clear beyond any reasonable doubt, does not prove they committed a crime. In sex crime cases, merely proving you were at a scene is often easy, especially in cases involving an alleged victim and defendant who knew each other well (such as a teacher, parent, or friend). Wrongful conviction can result from DNA evidence because a person can be put at the scene of a crime, and steps may not be taken to actually ensure they committed any wrongdoing.
Of course, DNA evidence can be just as helpful in proving you did not commit a crime. If you have been accused of a sex crime in Michigan that you did not commit, DNA evidence could prove you were not at the scene or that you did not have sexual contact with an alleged victim. No matter what charge you face, contact our talented team of attorneys now and fight back against criminal conviction.
